2011-03-23userns: add a user_namespace as creator/owner of uts_namespaceSerge E. Hallyn1-0/+1
The expected course of development for user namespaces targeted capabilities is laid out at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UserNamespace. Goals: - Make it safe for an unprivileged user to unshare namespaces. They will be privileged with respect to the new namespace, but this should only include resources which the unprivileged user already owns. - Provide separate limits and accounting for userids in different namespaces. Status: Currently (as of 2.6.38) you can clone with the CLONE_NEWUSER flag to get a new user namespace if you have the CAP_SYS_ADMIN, CAP_SETUID, and CAP_SETGID capabilities. What this gets you is a whole new set of userids, meaning that user 500 will have a different 'struct user' in your namespace than in other namespaces. So any accounting information stored in struct user will be unique to your namespace. However, throughout the kernel there are checks which - simply check for a capability. Since root in a child namespace has all capabilities, this means that a child namespace is not constrained. - simply compare uid1 == uid2. Since these are the integer uids, uid 500 in namespace 1 will be said to be equal to uid 500 in namespace 2. As a result, the lxc implementation at lxc.sf.net does not use user namespaces. This is actually helpful because it leaves us free to develop user namespaces in such a way that, for some time, user namespaces may be unuseful. Bugs aside, this patchset is supposed to not at all affect systems which are not actively using user namespaces, and only restrict what tasks in child user namespace can do. They begin to limit privilege to a user namespace, so that root in a container cannot kill or ptrace tasks in the parent user namespace, and can only get world access rights to files. Since all files currently belong to the initila user namespace, that means that child user namespaces can only get world access rights to *all* files. While this temporarily makes user namespaces bad for system containers, it starts to get useful for some sandboxing. I've run the 'runltplite.sh' with and without this patchset and found no difference. This patch: copy_process() handles CLONE_NEWUSER before the rest of the namespaces. So in the case of clone(CLONE_NEWUSER|CLONE_NEWUTS) the new uts namespace will have the new user namespace as its owner. That is what we want, since we want root in that new userns to be able to have privilege over it. Changelog: Feb 15: don't set uts_ns->user_ns if we didn't create a new uts_ns.

2011-03-22calibrate: retry with wider bounds when converge seems to failPhil Carmody1-4/+18
Systems with unmaskable interrupts such as SMIs may massively underestimate loops_per_jiffy, and fail to converge anywhere near the real value. A case seen on x86_64 was an initial estimate of 256<<12, which converged to 511<<12 where the real value should have been over 630<<12. This admitedly requires bypassing the TSC calibration (lpj_fine), and a failure to settle in the direct calibration too, but is physically possible. This failure does not depend on my previous calibration optimisation, but by luck is easy to fix with the optimisation in place with a trivial retry loop. In the context of the optimised converging method, as we can no longer trust the starting estimate, enlarge the search bounds exponentially so that the number of retries is logarithmically bounded.

2011-03-22calibrate: home in on correct lpj value more quicklyPhil Carmody1-23/+34
Binary chop with a jiffy-resync on each step to find an upper bound is slow, so just race in a tight-ish loop to find an underestimate. If done with lots of individual steps, sometimes several hundreds of iterations would be required, which would impose a significant overhead, and make the initial estimate very low. By taking slowly increasing steps there will be less overhead. E.g. an x86_64 2.67GHz could have fitted in 613 individual small delays, but in reality should have been able to fit in a single delay 644 times longer, so underestimated by 31 steps. To reach the equivalent of 644 small delays with the accelerating scheme now requires about 130 iterations, so has <1/4th of the overhead, and can therefore be expected to underestimate by only 7 steps. As now we have a better initial estimate we can binary chop over a smaller range. With the loop overhead in the initial estimate kept low, and the step sizes moderate, we won't have under-estimated by much, so chose as tight a range as we can.

2011-03-22calibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helperPhil Carmody1-33/+40
The motivation for this patch series is that currently our OMAP calibrates itself using the trial-and-error binary chop fallback that some other architectures no longer need to perform. This is a lengthy process, taking 0.2s in an environment where boot time is of great interest. Patch 2/4 has two optimisations. Firstly, it replaces the initial repeated- doubling to find the relevant power of 2 with a tight loop that just does as much as it can in a jiffy. Secondly, it doesn't binary chop over an entire power of 2 range, it choses a much smaller range based on how much it squeezed in, and failed to squeeze in, during the first stage. Both are significant optimisations, and bring our calibration down from 23 jiffies to 5, and, in the process, often arrive at a more accurate lpj value. The 'bands' and 'sub-logarithmic' growth may look over-engineered, but they only cost a small level of inaccuracy in the initial guess (for all architectures) in order to avoid the very large inaccuracies that appeared during testing (on x86_64 architectures, and presumably others with less metronomic operation). Note that due to the existence of the TSC and other timers, the x86_64 will not typically use this fallback routine, but I wanted to code defensively, able to cope with all kinds of processor behaviours and kernel command line options. Patch 3/4 is an additional trap for the nightmare scenario where the initial estimate is very inaccurate, possibly due to things like SMIs. It simply retries with a larger bound. Stephen said: I tried this patch set out on an MSM7630. : : Before: : : Calibrating delay loop... 681.57 BogoMIPS (lpj=3407872) : : After: : : Calibrating delay loop... 680.75 BogoMIPS (lpj=3403776) : : But the really good news is calibration time dropped from ~247ms to ~56ms. : Sadly we won't be able to benefit from this should my udelay patches make : it into ARM because we would be using calibrate_delay_direct() instead (at : least on machines who choose to). Can we somehow reapply the logic behind : this to calibrate_delay_direct()? That would be even better, but this is : definitely a boot time improvement. : : Or maybe we could just replace calibrate_delay_direct() with this fallback : calculation? If __delay() is a thin wrapper around read_current_timer() : it should work just as well (plus patch 3 makes it handle SMIs). I'll try : that out. This patch: ... so that it can be modified more clinically. This is almost entirely cosmetic. The only change to the operation is that the global variable is only set once after the estimation is completed, rather than taking on all the intermediate values. However, there are no readers of that variable, so this change is unimportant.

2011-02-16perf: Add cgroup supportStephane Eranian1-0/+10
This kernel patch adds the ability to filter monitoring based on container groups (cgroups). This is for use in per-cpu mode only. The cgroup to monitor is passed as a file descriptor in the pid argument to the syscall. The file descriptor must be opened to the cgroup name in the cgroup filesystem. For instance, if the cgroup name is foo and cgroupfs is mounted in /cgroup, then the file descriptor is opened to /cgroup/foo. Cgroup mode is activated by passing PERF_FLAG_PID_CGROUP in the flags argument to the syscall. For instance to measure in cgroup foo on CPU1 assuming cgroupfs is mounted under /cgroup: struct perf_event_attr attr; int cgroup_fd, fd; cgroup_fd = open("/cgroup/foo", O_RDONLY); fd = perf_event_open(&attr, cgroup_fd, 1, -1, PERF_FLAG_PID_CGROUP); close(cgroup_fd); Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> [ added perf_cgroup_{exit,attach} ] Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> LKML-Reference: <4d590250.114ddf0a.689e.4482@mx.google.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

During early boot, local IRQ is disabled until IRQ subsystem is properly initialized. During this time, no one should enable local IRQ and some operations which usually are not allowed with IRQ disabled, e.g. operations which might sleep or require communications with other processors, are allowed. lockdep tracked this with early_boot_irqs_off/on() callbacks. As other subsystems need this information too, move it to init/main.c and make it generally available. While at it, toggle the boolean to early_boot_irqs_disabled instead of enabled so that it can be initialized with %false and %true indicates the exceptional condition.

Because the adaptive synchronize_srcu_expedited() approach has worked very well in testing, remove the kernel parameter and replace it by a C-preprocessor macro. If someone finds problems with this approach, a more complex and aggressively adaptive approach might be required. Longer term, SRCU will be merged with the other RCU implementations, at which point synchronize_srcu_expedited() will be event driven, just as synchronize_sched_expedited() currently is. At that point, there will be no need for this adaptive approach. Reported-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin1-1/+19
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2010-12-24init: don't call flush_scheduled_work() from do_initcalls()Tejun Heo1-3/+0
The call to flush_scheduled_work() in do_initcalls() is there to make sure all works queued to system_wq by initcalls finish before the init sections are dropped. However, the call doesn't make much sense at this point - there already are multiple different workqueues and different subsystems are free to create and use their own. Ordering requirements are and should be expressed explicitly. Drop the call to prepare for the deprecation and removal of flush_scheduled_work(). Andrew suggested adding sanity check where the workqueue code checks whether any pending or running work has the work function in the init text section. However, checking this for running works requires the worker to keep track of the current function being executed, and checking only the pending works will miss most cases. As a violation will almost always be caught by the usual page fault mechanism, I don't think it would be worthwhile to make the workqueue code track extra state just for this.

2010-11-30sched: Add 'autogroup' scheduling feature: automated per session task groupsMike Galbraith1-0/+13
A recurring complaint from CFS users is that parallel kbuild has a negative impact on desktop interactivity. This patch implements an idea from Linus, to automatically create task groups. Currently, only per session autogroups are implemented, but the patch leaves the way open for enhancement. Implementation: each task's signal struct contains an inherited pointer to a refcounted autogroup struct containing a task group pointer, the default for all tasks pointing to the init_task_group. When a task calls setsid(), a new task group is created, the process is moved into the new task group, and a reference to the preveious task group is dropped. Child processes inherit this task group thereafter, and increase it's refcount. When the last thread of a process exits, the process's reference is dropped, such that when the last process referencing an autogroup exits, the autogroup is destroyed. At runqueue selection time, IFF a task has no cgroup assignment, its current autogroup is used. Autogroup bandwidth is controllable via setting it's nice level through the proc filesystem: cat /proc/<pid>/autogroup Displays the task's group and the group's nice level. echo <nice level> > /proc/<pid>/autogroup Sets the task group's shares to the weight of nice <level> task. Setting nice level is rate limited for !admin users due to the abuse risk of task group locking. The feature is enabled from boot by default if CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP=y is selected, but can be disabled via the boot option noautogroup, and can also be turned on/off on the fly via: echo [01] > /proc/sys/kernel/sched_autogroup_enabled ... which will automatically move tasks to/from the root task group.

2010-11-29rcu: Make synchronize_srcu_expedited() fast if running readersPaul E. McKenney1-0/+15
The synchronize_srcu_expedited() function is currently quick if there are no active readers, but will delay a full jiffy if there are any. If these readers leave their SRCU read-side critical sections quickly, this is way too long to wait. So this commit first waits ten microseconds, and only then falls back to jiffy-at-a-time waiting.

The priority to which to boost preempted RCU readers is controlled by the RCU_BOOST_PRIO kernel parameter (defaulting to real-time priority 1) and the time to wait before boosting the readers blocking a given grace period is controlled by the RCU_BOOST_DELAY kernel parameter (defaulting to 500 milliseconds).

2010-11-26perf, arch: Cleanup perf-pmu init vs lockup-detectorPeter Zijlstra1-0/+1
The perf hardware pmu got initialized at various points in the boot, some before early_initcall() some after (notably arch_initcall). The problem is that the NMI lockup detector is ran from early_initcall() and expects the hardware pmu to be present. Sanitize this by moving all architecture hardware pmu implementations to initialize at early_initcall() and move the lockup detector to an explicit initcall right after that.

2010-11-25cgroups: make swap accounting default behavior configurableMichal Hocko1-0/+13
Swap accounting can be configured by CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP configuration option and then it is turned on by default. There is a boot option (noswapaccount) which can disable this feature. This makes it hard for distributors to enable the configuration option as this feature leads to a bigger memory consumption and this is a no-go for general purpose distribution kernel. On the other hand swap accounting may be very usuful for some workloads. This patch adds a new configuration option which controls the default behavior (CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP_ENABLED). If the option is selected then the feature is turned on by default. It also adds a new boot parameter swapaccount[=1|0] which enhances the original noswapaccount parameter semantic by means of enable/disable logic (defaults to 1 if no value is provided to be still consistent with noswapaccount). The default behavior is unchanged (if CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP is enabled then CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP_ENABLED is enabled as well) Signed-off-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> Acked-by: Daisuke Nishimura <nishimura@mxp.nes.nec.co.jp> Cc: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
